    High Surgical Safety Standards

    At Elgar Road Vet Hospital near Doncaster, we pride ourselves on providing optimal care to our patients, before, during and after their surgical procedure.  

    • Pre-anaesthetic blood testing is a critical component of every surgical procedure at Elgar Road Vet. Our veterinary team carefully assesses the function of your pet's kidneys and liver, as well as important proteins, blood cells, and electrolytes levels. These tests are essential for ensuring a safe and successful anesthetic and smooth post-operative recovery.  
    • Intravenous (IV) fluids are administered throughout anesthesia to help stabilise your pet's blood pressure. Even healthy and fit animals can experience fluctuations in blood pressure during surgery due to the effects of the anesthetic. IV fluids also help to ensure that your pet is well-hydrated and their body's systems are functioning properly.  
    • Our team takes a thorough approach to the selection of a high safety level anesthetic, ensuring that each pet's medical history and individual requirements are considered.  
    • We use monitoring equipment during surgery to continuously measure your pet's blood pressure. This allows us to quickly respond to any changes in blood pressure that may occur, helping to ensure a safe and successful surgery.  
    • Our surgical team employs specialised equipment to measure your pet's oxygen saturation, respiratory rate, and heart rate, in addition to blood pressure, during surgery. This close monitoring of vital signs enables us to make any required adjustments to their anaesthesia and treatment.  
    • Our veterinary team closely monitors all aspects of your pet's surgery, including maintaining meticulous records of all parameters and drugs administered. This allows us to guarantee that your pet is receiving the necessary care, and their recovery is proceeding as expected.  
    • Sterility is crucial during surgery to prevent the risk of infection. We take special care to maintain strict sterility routines throughout your pet's surgery, including using specialised equipment and techniques to minimise the risk of contamination.  
    • Ensuring that your pet is comfortable and free from pain during and after surgery is crucial to us. Our veterinary team employs various pain management strategies, including pain medication and local anesthetics, to make sure your pet's recovery is as comfortable as possible.  
    • We employ additional measures to maintain your pet’s comfort after surgery, such as heating the surgical tables and recovery cages to ensure a comfortable body temperature throughout their recovery. 

    At Elgar Road Vet Hospital, we recognise the difficulty of entrusting your pet to someone else's care. Our goal is to provide the best possible care for your pet during their stay in our surgery, giving you peace of mind.

    What Our Client Say

    The vets and nurses here are all so incredible! We have been seen by atleast 5-6 different vets in our 3 years here and every single one of them are not only insanely knowledgeable, but so compassionate and trustworthy. They understanding how important our animals are to us and always suggest multiple options to make sure we’re happy with the actions. Their prices are standard vet prices, I never feel like I am being charged unreasonably, and everything is always explained in such great detail. They truly are so wonderful and it’s a joy bringing my cats to them.
    These guys have saved my dogs life and we could never be more appreciative. All the staff are amazing and so kind. Our dog Ollie actually loves coming to the vet even with all the needles and appointments! Emma is so lovely and caring. We’re forever grateful and will always take our furry friends to Elgar Road Vet.
